Android 4.0 Will Be Called ‘Ice Cream’

You are probably aware that each release of Android uses a dessert as its codename. For example, the current Android release (2.2) goes by the codename FroYo (Frozen Yogurt), while the next release (3.0) will be called Gingerbread. We also know that Android 3.5 will be codenamed Honeycomb. Now, Forbes is reporting that Android 4.0 will bear the codename “Ice Cream”.

This particular bit of information comes by the way of ARM President Tudor Brown. When pressed for comment, a Google spokesperson informed Forbes, The next platform release names are Gingerbread and Honeycomb. Additional timing and details have not been released yet.

So, what do you think about the codename “Ice Cream”? In my honest opinion, it is a tad mundane, and is possibly the worst after Cupcake. But then, I guess there aren’t too many simple and catchy dessert names that begin with an ‘i’.
